It shouldn’t matter if we have over come the abuse that was in our lives, or if we are still in the mess. Everyone can feel blessed by receiving a kind word, or a feeling of hope from someone. It creates a bigger problem when no one is willing to talk about it. If we bring the subject of “Abuse” up the atmosphere gets so quiet that you can hear a pin drop. That is not the way that is should be nor is it right. It is not a subject that is off the mind, or out of sight. Silence takes it to an abnormal height.
It doesn’t matter about the creed or the color. Abuse lurks in every neck of the woods. It shouldn’t matter if the abuse is with a family member, friend or a casual acquaintance, it is very serious. How can we close our hearts and minds to anyone that is in such detrimental pain? You may not have felt any of the pain; it can happen to you also. Abuse has happened in the best homes, and neighborhoods. Never think that you are too good or better than the rest. How we react to someone else’s pain may make the difference as to how we will be able to avoid our own pain. If you find yourself being faced with abuse, will you be strong enough to master the test?
